In his long political career, he adorned the offices of the Minister, Speaker, Member of Parliament (both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha) and Chief Minister. As Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, he always endeavoured for the upliftment of the society. His entire life was devoted to secure the dignity of individuals through selfless service to mankind.
